Happy Birthday Princess!

Today is the final day of our annual August birthday blitz.  Today, Emily turns 5.  Can you believe that?!?  My "baby" is FIVE!!!  Seriously, where does the time go?

She was SUPER excited about her birthday.  She has patiently waited all summer for her turn in the spotlight.  She had trouble going to sleep last night because she was so excited and, this morning, she came into our room at 6:45 (quite early for her) with a huge smile on her face.  "It's my birthday," she cheered.  She had her heart set on a party at Safari Nation, a local jumpy place.  She loved seeing her friends from preschool and playing this morning!  She certainly loved getting all the attention as the birthday girl, too!

And let me tell you, this little gal LOVES to get presents!  It wasn't easy, but we had her wait until we got home from the party to open her gifts.  She grinned the whole time and opened each one carefully, examined it for minute, then moved on to the next.  She was simply delighted with each and every one.

Although, I have three daughters, the two oldest have never been super "girlie."  Emily, however, is all girl all the time.  She only wears dresses and skirts.  Occasionally, I can talk her into a skort if we are going to a park or somewhere like that.  She loves the Disney princesses, has recently taken an interest in wedding gowns, and loves to play dress up.  In fact, my mom and dad gave Emily her birthday gift last weekend - a princess wedding gown dress up outfit complete with veil.  She put it on immediately, wore it for the entire two hour ride home, and wore it for the better part of the next two days.  I would have expected nothing less from our little princess.  She screams shrieks at the sight of a bug.  She doesn't like to sweat.  She loves all things pink and purple.

Emily also loves music.  She really enjoyed the music camp at our church she went to a couple weeks ago. She frequently asks for my iPhone, too.  She takes it to her room to sing and dance along.  That's why she was especially thrilled with the gift we got her for her birthday.

She has a little bit of her daddy's engineering tendencies in her as well.  She's made dolls out of coke bottles and paper.  She's built floats for her rubber ducks in the bath tub and easily figured out how the ice maker works after a brief examination.  With smarts like that, who knows what she will do in life?!?

Emily is an extremely loving little girl.  She gives out hugs and kisses like they are going out of style.
And, boy does she love to snuggle!

It's hard to believe this loving little princess will be going to kindergarten in a couple weeks.  She still loves her blankies and stuffed animals.  But she is also very smart and very intuitive.  I know she will be just fine, but I'm not so sure about me!

Happy Happy Birthday to you, Emily, my sweet little princess!!  I hope you keep dreaming and wishing and loving through many, many more happy birthdays!   We love you so much!
